Old Agoura Saves HolloweenDec 10, 2020
With a pandemic putting a monkey wrench in trick-or-treating this year, a group of about two hundred Old Agoura neighbors organized to treat each other to a parade this Halloween. Kids, dogs, goats, ponies…. there was good scary fun had by all.
This may be the first of an annual tradition. Even in “normal” years before social distancing was mandated, trick or treaters were scarce in rural communities. With homes on lots averaging an acre, kids, moms and dads who live in Old Agoura or Monte Nido have been known to carpool over to the suburbs of Calabasas and Hidden Hills where the treats per block are ten-fold. The Three Springs neighborhood in Westlake Village goes all out. Think full-size Snickers bars, full-fledged haunted houses, and block parties. So next year, we’ll see if anyone is game to encore the Old Agoura Holloween parade versus scoring enough candy to make anyone sick.
